12/06/2020 Friday Roundup
Winter has truely felt here with the frosty mornings of late, we hope you are keeping warm. Our Children's Poetry Sing-Along Program is now in full swing and we are excited to announce enrolments will remain open for the duration of the course. If your child would like to join at any time just send us an email.
Registrations have now closed for our HSK preparation classes which begin next week. We received an overwhelming response, particularly from our intermediate learners. We will continue to look for further ways to assist your mandarin language study if you missed out or are unable to attend the courses currently on offer.
We are also busy preparing our online celebrations for the Chinese Dragon Boat Festival at the end of June. Details for our activities related to this will be released shortly.
A new episode of Nihao Mate will be released next week too. Do you often feel like you're 'playing music for a cow'? No idea what this means? Find out next week!
